This is the obvious extension of the bolted crack, Shotgun (12b). After climbing Shotgun, get it all back at a sit-down rest beneath the roof. Place a red or gold camalot in the back of the roof before doing a cool, reachy maneuver over the lip. After getting established over the roof on the upper headwall, you have quite a few gear options and some great jugs for recovering. You'll need full recovery for the final boulder problem, which takes crimps, sidepulls, and slopers up over a little bulge. After this crux, place more bomber gear for the final 5.8 moves through some chossy flakes.


Same as Shotgun; right of Fatback and left of Fearful Symmetry; obvious bolted left-leaning seam.


Red Camalot and long sling for the back of the roof, .5-.3 Camalots for the upper headwall, with emphasis on .4. No anchor.
